Overview

Few rock groups of the '60s have been more influential and better remembered than the Doors. Led by shamanistic poet-visionary "Lizard King" Jim Morrison, the group has entered the pantheon of legendary popular performers, inspiring countless imitators, books, and even a film, while continuing to sell records nearly thirty years after the group disbanded. This is the first collection of articles, interviews, and reviews to cover the group's entire career, including newspaper accounts of the famous concert in Miami, as well as other concerts; extensive interviews with Morrison and the other group members; and even Morrison's own poetry and works by other writers, including Charles Baudelaire and Antonin Artaud, that influenced his thinking. This is a must-have for all fans of the greatest rock band ever.
